George Michael Injured In Car Crash
George Michael was injured in a car crash yesterday (May 16) in England, according to the BBC. A spokesman for Michael confirmed he had been involved in an accident on Thursday but said the singer only had “superficial cuts” and was “fine.” No arrests have been made.
A statement on his official website reads: “George Michael was a passenger in a vehicle involved in a traffic accident yesterday evening, no third party was involved. He is being treated for superficial cuts and bruises but is fine. We have no further comment at this time.”
According to the BBC report, an ambulance spokesman said: “The man, who we believe to be in his 40s, sustained a head injury and following treatment, stabilization and immobilization by land and air ambulance crews, he was flown to hospital for further care.”
A police spokesman said: “The exact circumstances of what happened are unclear at this time and until further investigations have been carried out it would be inappropriate for us to comment further.”
This comes months after Michael cancelled a tour due to anxiety in September of 2012. When he announced the cancellation, he said, “Since last year’s illness I have tried in vain to work my way through the trauma that the doctors who saved my life warned me I would experience.”
That illness he referred to was a vicious case of pneumonia that nearly killed him, and inspired his 2012 single, “White Light.”
